"Amid President Donald Trump’s visit to India, Andy Puzder, former CKE Restaurants CEO and one-time nominee for labor secretary, said a trade deal between the U.S. and India is a “real possibility” that will not only benefit the two countries, but the world."

Fact Check: Did the DNC Illegally Steal the 2016 Primary from Bernie Sanders?

 | November 06, 2017 04:10 AM
tws2020-1200398 Hillary Clinton laughs on November 6, 2016 in Cleveland, Ohio.

After a startling revelation from former Democratic National Committee interim chair Donna Brazile that the DNC had engineered the party’s primary election system in favor of then-candidate Hillary Clinton, President Donald Trump suggested that the primary was illegally stolen from Bernie Sanders.

On Thursday, Brazile released a excerpt from her new book on Politico’s website. The excerpt explained how the Hillary Victory Fund, Hillary for America, and the Democratic National Committee signed a Joint Fund-Raising Agreement, which gave a significant advantage to Clinton’s campaign.

“Hillary would control the party’s finances, strategy, and all the money raised,” Brazile wrote. “Her campaign had the right of refusal of who would be the party communications director, and it would make final decisions on all the other staff. The DNC also was required to consult with the campaign about all other staffing, budgeting, data, analytics, and mailings.”

After this revelation, President Donald Trump tweeted out, "Donna Brazile just stated the DNC RIGGED the system to illegally steal the Primary from Bernie Sanders. Bought and paid for by Crooked H…."

 
 

 

 

 
 

 


This is not the first time the DNC has been accused of illegally rigging the primary race between Sanders and Clinton.

According to a report in Newsweek , attorneys who filed a class-action lawsuit against the DNC argued that “the DNC violated Article 5, Section 4 of its own charter by working with a single campaign to effectively choose who would win the Democratic ballot.”

This portion of the DNC charter—article five, section four—states:

 

In the conduct and management of the affairs and procedures of the Democratic National Committee, particularly as they apply to the preparation and conduct of the Presidential nomination process, the Chairperson shall exercise impartiality and evenhandedness as between the Presidential candidates and campaigns.

“These governing documents,” the complaint argues, “expressly obligate the DNC to maintain a neutral posture with respect to candidates seeking the party’s nomination for President during the nominating process.”

According to Newsweek, in response to the lawsuit the DNC contended that “the organization's neutrality among Democratic campaigns during the primaries was merely a 'political promise,' and therefore it had no legal obligations to remain impartial throughout the process.”

And the court seems to have agreed with the DNC: The lawsuit was dismissed in late August.

In her book, Brazile agrees with the court, too. She says that, contra President Trump, the Clinton campaign’s actions were not illegal. “The funding arrangement with HFA and the victory fund agreement was not illegal, but it sure looked unethical,” Brazile notes. “This was not a criminal act, but as I saw it, it compromised the party’s integrity.”

I don't think the DNC will intervene in the election. Even tho Bernie is not a Democrat he brings in alot of people that are not democrats. 

 

Buttigieg was a mayor of  a small town; he hardly is the voice of the party.  Bloomberg used to be a Republican. Many candidates have weaknesses. Even Steyer and Gabbard are still candidates

This is no ordinary election.....

If Bernie wins it will change the dynamics of the Dem party forever....and that's the last thing the DNC wants...

In your opinion, will the DNC "allow" Bernie to be the nominee?

Keep this "landslide" in perspective.

 

According to the Secretary of State for Nevada, at the end of January 2020 there were just over 698,000 voters registered as Dems in Nevada.  That means voter turnout among dems for the Nevada caucus was 14.17%.  Total votes cast was about equal to the population of the 75th largest city/town/community in CA.

2.3% of the delegates have been decided so far there’s a long way to go
